For 17 days in August and September 2002, the LIGO and GEO interferometer gravitational wave detectors were operated in coincidence to produce their first data for scientific analysis. Although the detectors were still far from their design sensitivity levels, the data can be used to place better upper limits on the flux of gravitational waves incident on(More)
Two new rare pyrane-based cembranoids, sarcotrocheliol acetate (1) and sarcotrocheliol (2), along with two known cembranoids, cembrene-C (3) and sarcophine (4), and the aromadendrene sesquiterpenoid, palustrol (5), were isolated from the soft coral Sarcophyton trocheliophorum. Chemical structures were determined on the basis of extensive analysis of their(More)

The LIGO interferometers are operating as gravitational wave observatories, with a noise level near an order of magnitude of the goal and the first scientific data recently taken. This data has been analyzed for four different categories of gravita-tional wave sources; millisecond bursts, inspiralling binary neutron stars, periodic waves from a known(More)
Multiple feedback systems are foreseen to ensure stable luminosity for the X-band linear collider. Beam-based train-by-train steering feedbacks will be used in the linac and at the IP. Active stabilization of the final doublet is being developed to counteract the possibility of excessive vibration from the detector. Another option is fast intra-train(More)
Vertical vibration of linac components (accelerating structures, girders and quadrupoles) in the NLC has been studied experimentally and analytically. Effects such as structural resonances and vibration caused by cooling water both in accelerating structures and quadrupoles have been considered. Experimental data has been compared with analytical(More)
